Plan

I have finally worked out a plan on how to go about my calorie restriction.  And it involves healthy, real food. 🙂  However, for the past few weeks, I have been stress eating.  That was why last night I really had to sit down and work out my menu for the following months or else my clothes/dress wouldn’t fit me and I wouldn’t have anything pretty to wear on my cousin’s wedding.

The best lunch/dinner I’ve had here so far.  With the barbecue parties I’ve been at here, I have learned to appreciate the different salads that go well with sausage (snag) and steak (barbecue).  But if I were to do it, if I wouldn’t cook rice, I would just boil or microwave potato and sweet potato and that’s it–substitutes for rice.

I’ve also discovered that canned pineapples and sweet corn are available here.  So all is well.

Adobo Version 2

Here in the country, there isn’t much restaurant in town.  So I have to do what I got to do to survive–cook.  And one of the easy dishes to cook is adobo.  With the help of Mama Sita’s ready mix, I made adobo almost instantly.

The taste is alright but if you want to do the sauce from scratch, you need soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, and pepper for this.  Saute the garlic until golden brown, add the chicken, stir fry them until cooked, add a bit of soy sauce and vinegar and a little pepper.  Adjust the taste if you want it salty, add more soy sauce and if you want it sour, add more vinegar.  You can also make it chili by adding some chili sauce. 🙂

This dish goes best with rice. 🙂
